Neelam Muneer

She’s known for her sharp wit and easygoing attitude. But behind the star is a girl who had to prove her mettle to get where she is today. Neelam Muneer in conversation with Fashion Times Magazine, reveals the secrets about her balanced life and how she intends to take her career very seriously.



Q:) I could add more superlatives to describe you; people know that you are beautiful, poised and elegant. Who is the Neelam they don’t know?


A:) Every person has different shades to their personalities. People don’t know that I am an extrovert by nature; simple, easy to get along with, pure at heart and fun loving. I enjoy myself in gatherings and don’t get irritated by people.


Q:) It’s an all-new aura about you since you started as a teenager? You’ve completed a decade in the industry. Have you changed or people have changed?


A:) It’s been an amazing roller coaster ride since I stared. Time flies, I can’t believe it’s been a decade in the industry. Naturally people were different initially as they were unaware of my talent, but as of now people know me and expect a lot from me. I feel it’s a big responsibility on an actor’s part to maintain a balance by making the right choices.


Q:) Life has been good to you as all your projects over the years have turned out to be back-to-back hits. How does it feel like to be a public temptation?


A:) I feel I am blessed; I have worked really hard to be where I am today. I am fortunate that whatever project I choose to do is immensely liked by the audience. At present, I am basking in the glory of my recent drama serial ‘Qayamat’. I am putting all these positive vibes into my future projects.



Q:) There isn’t a cosmetic in the world other than success and appreciation. Did you always know in the back of your mind that one day you’ll be successful and get appreciated?


A:) It feels so nice and blessed to be a celebrity. I couldn’t have asked for more. I meet a lot of fans everyday, who are crazy, just to catch a glimpse of us. At the same time, I feel proud to be the chosen one and take the responsibility of being an actor with great pride by doing substantial work.


Q:) How do you strike a balance between your career and personal life?


A:) I have always been qualitative rather than quantitative. I choose to be a part of selected projects; therefore I get time to spend with my family. I am quite a multitasker; therefore, it’s easy to keep a balance between the two.


Q:) What do you look for in a script?


A:) I believe the script is the soul of any project. Firstly I look up to my character.Is the role offering me enough meat and margin to perform? Besides who is the writer? The director and D.O.P do matter a lot.If all combinations fall in the right place than you’re nothing short of creating magic on screen. I have the habit of building my up-character craft, I work on the peculiarities of the character i.e., the way she speaks, behaves or may look up, is a pre requisite for me.



Q:) What’s next?


A:) I am sharing screen space with Ahsan Khan in Yasir Nawaz’s next feature film ‘Chakkar’. The premise of the film is unique; a genre that hasn’t been seen on Pakistan’s silver screen. It’s a challenging role; I am sure it will be a different cinematic experience for avid moviegoers. I am also reading another film script. Besides, I am in talks for a couple of projects for TV as well.
